Compact Unit – General Info
The Actisol® Compact Unit mixes a low volume of insecticide with a high volume of air, atomizing the mixture in a special nozzle. The atomization nozzle produces a high proportion of ideally-sized insecticide particles in a continuous high volume air stream. The aerosol penetrates further to reach target insects in the most hidden recesses of cracks, crevices, and voids. This improved penetration is DEEP HARBORAGE pest control.
All Actisol® Compact Units are available with special Anodized Treatment.
Available colors are: Black, Blue, Clear, Green, Red
The benefits of anodizing include:
Cost – A lower initial finishing cost combines with lower maintenance costs for greater long-term value.
Health and Safety – Anodizing is a safe process that is not harmful to human health. An anodized finish is chemically stable, will not decompose; is non-toxic; and is heat-resistant to the melting point of aluminum (1,221 degrees F.) Since the anodizing process is a reinforcement of a naturally occurring oxide process, it is non-hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by-products.
Ease of Maintenance – Scars and wear from fabrication, handling, installation, frequent surface dirt cleaning and usage are virtually nonexistent. Rinsing or mild soap and water cleaning usually will restore an anodized surface to its original appearance. Mild abrasive cleaners can be used for more difficult deposits.
Durability – Most anodized products have an extremely long life span and offer significant economic advantages through maintenance and operating savings. Anodizing is a reacted finish that is integrated with the underlying aluminum for total bonding and unmatched adhesion.
Aesthetics – Anodizing offers a large increasing number of gloss and color alternatives and minimizes or eliminates color variations. Unlike other finishes, anodizing allows the aluminum to maintain its metallic appearance.
Color Stability – Exterior anodic coatings provide good stability to ultraviolet rays, do not chip or peel, and are easily repeatable.
Preparations and Guidelines When Making ULV Aerosol Applications
(Mallis Handbook of Pest Control, Ninth Edition)
- Everyone in the treatment area must wear an approved respirator during treatment and when re-entering a treated area when the aerosol may still be present.
- Turn off all pilot lights or sources of open flame. Ventilation systems and air moving systems should be turned off. Appliances that routinely create high heat should be turned off. Computers and other electrical equipment should be turned off, covered, or removed from the treatment area.
- All non-pest management personnel must leave the treatment area. Cover or remove ornamental plants. Cover and seal all aquariums. Aquarium filters must be shut off and not turned back on until the aerosol is no longer present. Pets, including exotic pets (birds, amphibians, reptiles, arachnids) must be removed. Re-entry for exotic pets is not recommended for a period of 24 hours.
- All exposed food must be removed or placed in containers that will prevent contact with the insecticide. Food preparation utensils and surfaces must be covered or cleaned thoroughly before reuse.
- Close and lock all entry ways. Professionals may want to consider posting warning signs on doors opening into the treatment site.
- Open all doors, cabinets, storage areas, and drawers in the treatment area.
- Before reoccupation, thoroughly ventilate treatment area.
- Do not use gasoline powered equipment in grain mills, flour mills, grain storage, or grain processing areas. Grain/Flour dust may be highly explosive. Electric powered units must be certified as explosion proof for these sites. Check with manufacturers for details on certification.
- This unit is a definite must for those heavy infestations in both commercial and residential accounts. Easy to use, it's a mean machine that will pay for itself over time. No more using aerosols that waste time and money on insecticides that cannot get to the "source" of the infestation inside wall voids and other deep harborage areas. Great little unit!- Andy Bury | Safeguard Pest Control
- Don't be fooled by imitations. Actisol is the way to go when you have a commercial kitchen with cockroach issues or a hotel room with bedbugs. Residual, flush and dust is a must for me and my night commercial accounts. I used a compact Actisol for 9 years with a Pest Elimination company. Now that I have my own business and I wouldn't have it any other way.- Martin in Brownsville, Texas
- These machines are awesome!!- Dan in Des Moines, Iowa
- This unit’s a must for any commercial kitchen accounts. Not only does it look very professional, it is very effective in flushing those difficult German Roaches out of every crack and crevice. You will see the savings in pesticides and regular aerosol cans. It’s worth the investment!- Pembroke Pines, FL
